What every Importer needs to know before 1st July 2021

Wednesday 9th June 2021
10:00am - 11:00am


Importing processes have changed since the end of the transition period and the UK’s departure from the EU.

More changes are coming this year and imports will be subject to additional scrutiny from 1st July. It is therefore vital that importers are aware of their procedural and financial obligations and have the records needed.

As an importer you need to review -

  • Do you have processes in place for import declarations?

  • If they are taken care of by your transporters, have you verified that they have taken place correctly and ensured the right duty and VAT charges have been made?

  • Are you familiar with Postponed VAT Accounting and have you viewed your online statement?

Some transporters are assuming importers are using this scheme but traders may be unaware.

Be part of this webinar where our experts will explain the issues that you need to understand, show you how to deal with them and share information about grant funding that can cover training and professional advice.

Date:   Wednesday 9th June 2021 10.00am - 11.00am 
Cost to attend: FREE for Members and £25 + VAT Non-Members

There will also be time to answer your questions on these topics.

What attendees from previous webinars had to say 

"Just wanted to say. I’ve previously joined official calls on importing. Unfortunately they can sometimes turn out to be acronym-ridden and unhelpful. This past hour with Frances gave us so much more. Very much appreciated, please pass on my thanks." Simon Cook, Managing Director of Airbench

Please note: This webinar will not be recorded and any material will only be circulated to those that attend.
